Well, Hello There 2017!

Wow, it has been quite some time since I last blogged.  The months leading up to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day are always very busy.   Our family enjoyed all the holidays and I hope you all did as well.

I did add some dolls to my collection.  I have always had a special place in my heart for Raggedy Ann.  The first doll I remember having was a Raggedy Ann.  Several have come here to live.  All three are handmade one-of-a-kind dolls.  I will spare you all the details, and leave you with a cute photo of them.  This photo does not include Woody Ann, my custom wooden Raggedy.  She has a post devoted to her already.

This first month of 2017 is fading fast.  Time seems to go by so quickly these days.  I hope your New Year is wonderful  and blessed!

I love Raggedy Ann! I have been reading some of her original stories to my little one. I recently found a matched set of Raggedy Ann and Andy at the thrift store...they are older, vintage ones made by Georgene Novelties. Very well loved, but I like them best that way!

Hi Angela! That's a nice score of the Georgene Raggedies! They are very popular among collectors. I had a Silsby face Georgene, but decided to sell it. I really love them all, which is a slippery slope! :o)

Hi Carolyn! No need to start over on the blog--just start writing again! :~) Love the Raggedies! They're some of my absolute favorite kinds of dolls.
